Loose Threads: Rotherfield Grey Center

Monday, December 2, 2013

Rotherfield Grey Center


I have put another border on my Rotherfield Grey quilt.  The stars in the corners are English paper pieced and then hand appliqued' onto the background fabric.  The braid is pieced from my scraps and  fabric from friends.  The Rotherfield Grey quilt is in Di Ford's book Primarily Quilts.

 
Each border is something different, and the quilt will finish at 84".  The next border is scrappy hexagons.  I've been working on those whenever I had a scrap big enough to cover the 5/8" paper piece so they are ready to applique' onto the next border.



I'm linking up with Patchwork Times Design Wall Monday today.  You can see what others have on their design walls this morning by clicking the link.

I hope you are finding just a little time to stitch during this busy season.

Thanks for stopping by!

This is really lovely, LuAnn. I esp. love the braid. I assume it is bias strips. Just gorgeous.

Oh, wow -- this is GORGEOUS, LuAnn! Like something from a textile museum. I'm looking forward to seeing how the hexie border comes together.
